I would like to see some nice visualizations of plane waves. Has anyone a nice link or knows a book where to find such?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For EM waves the perpendicular E and B vector span a plane at each instant of time, right?

What if there would be only an electric field wave. Would there be also a planes, i.e. are there many electric field vectors aligned next to each other at each point in time?
